Subject: RE: Folklore: Rude Rhymes & Bawdy Songs.
Thanks for the feedback.

Yes, I too enjoy the Ed McCurdy recordings of When Dalliance Was in Flower -- all of which are on my website. These are songs are primarily derived from Thomas D'Urfey's Pills to Purge.

I am looking for BAWDY FOLKSONGS that were learned from other people. Most people seem to have learned their traditional bawdy songs while in college, in the military, while playing sports (e.g. Rugby) or as a Hash House Harrier.

So if any of you know any bawdy songs, would you be willing to sing them? I can make the recording anonymous if you prefer.

If yes, you can email me directly at John Mehlberg.

Any help will be appreciated.
